  • Summary: I'm getting 150-180mbps out of the 60 years old wiring of my house. Since I'm using the adapters between my computer and my home theater that's fast enough. On 2 occasions after a power outage the adapters would connect together but wouldn't pass any data. I had to unplug/plug them and redo the setup. I'll most likely buy another set soon.
  • Pros: Easy to setup. Speeds are good.
  • Cons: Sometimes wont work after a power outage

  • Summary: I connected my PC (on the 2nd floor) to the router (in the basement) and I'm getting 100mbps without any packet loss, this is awesome!!! As expected, 3 floor won't reach 500mbps so it's not my "real" con: it is its power saving features that just won't work with my computer. Luckly, TP-Link have submitted a "beta" program to disable those features. So far I don't have any more complaints!
  • Pros: Reliable, plug&play
  • Cons: Won't wake-up when I turn on my computer, not full 500mbps across 3 floors.

  • Summary: I bought these thinking I can hook up my HTPC in my living room with my switch at the other end of the house. Turns out the wiring in my house is separate so they don't even see each other. Anyways, when plugged into the different sockets in the same room I get around 300Mbps which isn't bad. They are rather large with no passthrough. Also, they get pretty hot after a while.
  • Pros: Easy to setup
  • Cons: Gets hot

  • Summary: Was initially worried that the poor wiring in my apartment would cause a problem, but none encountered. Increased the speed and reliability of my desktop's connection vs wireless. It also saved me the trouble of having to run an ethernet cable 30ft from my only phone jack to my desktop in another room. Wish I had found these years ago!
  • Pros: Easy setup, Access to a wired connection in other parts of your house
  • Cons: Bigger than I expected

  • Summary: Using this kit for a smart tv, rather than wireless. Setup was incredibly easy and haven't had the same issues we had watching netflix with the tv's wireless connection. Only issue is some whine coming from one of the units, but only noticeable if the room is quiet.
  • Pros: Easy setup, great performance.
  • Cons: Small amount of whine from one of the units.

  • Summary: I received my TP-Link TL-PA511KIT AV500 Gigabit Powerline Adapter Starter Kit today, and boy am I happy. No more wi-fi interference for me. Package included two adapters, two cat5 cables, quick set up guide, and tiny cd with a software utility and full manual. I didn't have to do much to set up, just plug each in and (though I'm not sure I had to, press the sync button).
  • Pros: Great speeds, minimal interference, easy setup
  • Cons: Only one port adapters, TP-Link does not make 4 port.

Less than promised and expected

  • Summary: Simple to install out of the box. One is connected via Ethernet cable directly to an Actiontec router. When the second adapter was paired with the first using a nearby power plug, pairing was easy, and the data rate light was green (greater than 80 Mbps data rate). When moved to desired location (from upstairs to downstairs), the date rate light was red, meaning less than 48 Mbps. Physical distance is less than 60 feet; power wiring distance unknown.

  • Summary: Jag hade problem med att få en bra signal från min Wi-Fi VDSL router (fast punkt och mest avlägsna punkten i huset) så jag sökte en "fast" lösning. Tja, allt jag kan säga väl använda pengar. Även om routern är 10/100, är ??jag fortfarande kunna strömma HD-video, inklusive 4k, från Youtube utan problem. Ibland lysdioden för linjestyrka blir röd men ingen märkbar skillnad i prestanda. Rekommenderas varmt.

TP-Link power adapter

  • Summary: De twee adapters moeten eerst aan elkaar gelinkt worden door een druk op de knop. Daarna werkt alles feilloos. De internet snelheid wordt door de aansluiting via het lichtnet wel minder, in mijn geval van 60 Mbit/s naar 48 Mbit/s. Verder is gebleken dat het veel verschil maakt op welke electrische groep de power adapter wordt aangesloten. Ik heb op zolder gelukkig twee groepen beschikbaar, waarvan de beste een 2x hogere snelheid bereikt dan de slechte.
  • Pros: werkt foutloos
  • Cons: prestatie afhankelijk van electriche groep, zeker 30 cm afstand naar andere apparatuur houden
